Here at Local 4 we’ve been doing our best to support and encourage frontline and essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis. One such effort is our Food 4 Frontline program where people in our community have made generous donations that already total more than $227,000. And thanks to that outpouring, more than 21,000 thousand of meals have been delivered to local healthcare, frontline and essential workers - with thousands more scheduled.

In the last few weeks we’ve been coordinating between hospitals and our food partners in order to feed workers who sometimes don’t even think about their own meals while they’re risking their lives for others.
